Congratulations to the U16 Netball Squad who held there nerve in a physical encounter against South Hunsley School in the regional finals of the SnS National Cup.

BGS were able to capitalise early in the match due to a few unforced errors by the opposition and went into the second quarter with a 6 goal lead. South Hunsley regrouped during the break and came back strong and pulled within two goals, demonstrating flair in attack and patience with the ball. Chloe P, Harriet N and Beth W defended tightly and picked off some impressive interceptions to create shooting opportunities in attack. Lucy J worked tirelessly in the centre court to support both attack and defence and stood up strong in the big moments to help BGS gain momentum when needed. When the full time whistle blew, the score was tiled 48-48. Extra time loomed. Some sound advice from Mrs Eady focused the girls on the task and hand and reminded them of the importance of doing the basics well. Whilst nerves were high on the sidelines, the squad remained composed in the final 10 minute section of play. Rene G was calm, composed and stood up strong in the circle shooting with confidence and accuracy.

We build again and look forward to the National Semi Final in the next few weeks. Not the perfect performance, but lots of positives to take away and things to focus on in our upcoming preparations

A MASSIVE ACHIEVEMENT from a fully committed and invested squad!
